No idea what im doing

Postby Phred » Sun Aug 07, 2011 5:00 pm


I am new to this and have no experience programming things. I am also new to Linux. I would like to edit the ruleset for freeciv to change around some of the government options. Would someone be willing to help me out by providing me with a simple and easy to understand description of all that I need to do to create a new form of government?

Thanks in advance!

If you plan to modiffy a ruleset I suggest to use this info as reference:

If you just want to add a new government, I suggest to compare the ruleset "default" with the ruleset "civ2" where a new government, fundamentalism, was added. You will need to check these files:

You will also need an icon for the new government. I used generic icons from default game for my own modified governments, this way they can be compatible with any graphical set. For example:

Code: Select all

name        = _("Federation")
reqs = { "type", "name", "range"
         "tech", "Democracy", "Player"
graphic     = "s.tax_gold"
graphic_alt = "-"

Default government icons can be found here:
graphic: datamiscsmall.png
name: datamiscsmall.spec
